With just a month to go before the British Grand Prix, fans still wanting tickets need to hurry as there is only “5 per cent of total capacity” still available.
In a statement, organisers revealed that a “combination of factors including recent ticket promotions and a revised child pricing policy have resulted in record sales for this year’s event and only 5 per cent of total capacity remains available to sell.”
In order to accommodate more fans, additional space at Club and Becketts corners has been made available while there are some general admission tickets still for sale.
Silverstone Managing Director Patrick Allen said the following about the subject:-
‘Thanks to recent pricing initiatives and opening up the event to make it more affordable for families we are now almost full. Demand has been tremendous and we are 95 per cent sold and predicting that 2015 will be a record breaking crowd.’
It is great news to hear that Silverstone is nearly sold out this season and that many are choosing to part with their hard earned money to see F1. With these initiatives working at Silverstone, many tracks such as Hockenheim could adapt these methods in order to try and regain back the fans that used to attend the event.
The British GP takes place from 3-5 July and it looks like with the form that Lewis Hamilton is in this season so far; we could see yet another consecutive British victory, but only time will tell.
